Christine Luciano
Christine Luciano began dancing at a young age at the Boston Ballet School and went on to study at the Walnut Hill School of Performing Arts. She received her BFA in Dance from New York University and became certified and licensed through the Mind Body Dancer® 200 Yoga Teacher Training with TaraMarie Perri. Growing up in such a vigorous ballet background, she appreciated the anatomical alignment and mind/body connection that comes with the practice of Mind Body Dancer® yoga classes to help ground her and make her a stronger dancer. As the apprentice to essential oil guru, Nancy Engel, Christine has developed ways to incorporate essential oils to enhance the practice and to rejuvenate the senses. She has found a perfect marriage of yoga and essential oils to strengthen the mind/body connection.

Currently, Christine dances with Cherylyn Lavagnino Dance Company and teaches with The Ballet Tech School in Manhattan. She has previously worked with Sydney Skybetter, Kate Hutter, Lauri Stallings, Graham Lustig, Samuel Kurkjian, and Michael Owen and her additional training includes Atlanta Ballet and The National Theatre of Prague.
